Being that I'm still on assignment, I've decided to let you in on the experiment that I did on myself to try to understand the nature of Ketosis Prone Type 2 diabetes or as I call it Abrupt onset type 2 diabetes.
Okay, a bit of a review. Ketosis prone type 2 diabetes is an abrupt onset type 2 diabetes though highly prevalent in people of color it can and does pop up in any group. The fact is that KPDM is actually a subset of this form of diabetes. I know LADA's that have gone DKA. There is a real question in my mind whether Abrupt onset T2 (AOT2) is a type of diabetes or simply a mechanism through which diabetes is expressed.
At any rate, this is a diabetes that comes on very strong because the body simply quits producing insulin. It is therefore classified as a type 1 diabetes, T1b. It comes out of nowhere. In 6 months time a person can go from near normal blood sugars to DKA. I talk about this process in these posts. Relapse
It has also been shown to vanish just as quickly, if handled correctly. In the space of a year, a person can go from near normal blood sugars to close to death from DKA and then back again. This not a regular diabetes and so far has failed serious classification. It is so fantastical that most people don't know it exists, even those most susceptible to it such as people of Latin, African and Asian descent.
I, however, got lucky. About six months ago, I found myself with a revived 1st phase insulin response. I wasn't content with this. I had to find out what happened and how this could be and I kept experimenting until I not only found it but was able to manipulate it. I could turn it off and on with a simple manipulation. You can read about this process through this link, This is a dialogue on diabetesforums where I talk about this experiment
Here are some of the citations that I dug up to back up what I believed to be the cause of my suddenly restored 1st phase insulin response.

This got me to thinking about KPDM and its quick rise and fall which you can read here. Here
Now you know. It was a NSAID called Sodium Naproxen taken as needed. The net cost was about 60 cents. More when I have the time.
